Instructions: The ready side fold card measures 7" by 7". Choose a 6' by 6' card panel from the Butterfly Dreams Paper Collection and cut the center round window using Eyelet Circle Basic Small Die Set. Also, distress the edges using a distressing tool or small scissors. Choose another pattern paper and create a window scene by layering the same with the help of glue dots. Further, create a green color mat and distress the edges and layer it using glue dots. Once happy with all layering, glue the card front to the ready card base.

Cut a white frame by nesting outer 2 dies of the Eyelet Circle and Basic Small die. Adhere it to the card window as shown. Cut a fancy frame from Butterfly Kisses Frame Die and cut all the corners apart. Adhere all the four corners as shown using glue that dries clear.

For Butterfly, white heat set three butterfly images on vellum using Frost White Ink and white embossing powder and cut 2 layers as shown. Color the butterflies using Fired Brick and Fossilized Amber distress inks. Shape the top 2 layers and glue all the layers together. Add some Swarovski for extra interest. Heat the ready butterfly with a heat gun and without wasting time sprinkle Twinkling Spark Glitter. Dust extras and heat set it again. It will make the glitter stick firmly to the details of the butterfly

Leaves: Leaves from Classic Rose stamp set are stamped using Library Green Archival ink and colored using Leaf Green and Olive Green Archival inks. These are then cut using the coordinating die and shaped using Deluxe flower shaping Kit. Glitter the leaves using Crystal Clear Powder and adhesive that dries clear.

For Lilacs, Images are stamped with VersaMark on vellum and heat set using white embossing powder. Cut the images with its coordinating die. Color the flowers using Raspberry Pink and Seedless Preserves. Shape the flowers using needle tool and add prills to the centers.

For Sunflower, stamp Classic Sunflower Stamp set with white Color Box ink and sprinkle white heat embossing powder. Dust extras and heat set with a heating tool. Paint the petals with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide, let it settle it for a couple of minutes and then wipe off the extra ink with a napkin. Cut the petals using Classic Sunflower Die. Shape the petals by rolling each petal on a back of golf tool and glue the petals together using Aleene's fast grab glue to form a Sunflower. Prick the center and pass the rock candy stamens and set them tight with hot glue. Once all the elements are ready, assemble the card as shown. Add crystal clear, using an adhesive that dries clear, on all the edges for extra interest and complete the card by adding a sentiment from the pattern papers.
